Any Standalone Boards Similar to the Xilinx Virtex-5 FXT Mini-Module Plus?

Anyone know of any mini boards similar to the Xilinx Virtex-5 FXT Mini-Module Plus but can be used as a standalone board and powered by a single DC input?

 

I'm looking for a mini board that has a Xilinx FPGA (Virtex-4 or above or Spartan-6), Ethernet port and around 80 user I/O pins.

 

Thank you.

Not sure what you mean by standalone. All Avnet mini modules are designed to plug into a customer baseboard (could be a very simple baseboard) or Avnet baseboard. All Avnet mini modules require a baseboard to provide multiple power rails and JTAG connection to the mini module. Here is a link to our Virtex-4 mini module www.em.avnet.com/virtex4mini.

You might want to take a look at the Avnet S6LX75T PCIe board (http://www.em.avnet.com/spartan6lx75t-pcie).  Though not a 'mini module' form factor, it is a standalone board with a Spartan-6 LX75T FPGA and lots of user I/O via the LPC FMC, MXP, and Pmod headers.

 

If you are looking for an updated mini module form factor you could check out the Kintex-7 Mini Module Plus (http://www.em.avnet.com/k7mmp).

Thanks, I was hoping for the same form factor but can take a single DC input for power. Oh well.

 

I'll go with the Kintex kit. The Kintex mini-modules seem to be out of stock. When will they be back in stock?

I am told the AES-MMP-7K325T-G should be in stock within the next two weeks.  Hopefully this lead time is OK for your schedule.

Tom

Well, the site is back up but it seems that the mini-module is not available for US shipping. Oh well, I guess it's time to get a different board.
